The possible mechanisms inducing acute coronary obstruction starting from the atherosclerotic plaque are illustrated. The effects of the inhibitors of the platelet1s receptor GPIIb/IIIa and the results of the main trials performed using these inhibitors are reported. Finally, the results obtained immediately before their employment in the coronary angioplasty with or without stent1s implantation are also reported. The first applications in acute ischemic stroke appear to be favourable too.
